Author Templates


The formats of these templates resemble the journal layout and are designed to give authors a clearer idea of the length and layout of their final paper. This may be of particular use for authors of Communications which have specific page restrictions.

Please note that, while for most RSC journals use of the templates is optional and not a requirement for submission, use of the templates is mandatory for submission to ChemComm. Templates should be used in conjunction with the 'Instructions for Authors' for the relevant journal, to ensure that the particular requirements of the journal (e.g. reference format) are met. For authors not wishing to use the template, please follow the general guidelines on the preparation of articles for each journal.
